The original for older CJs was blank, 3 speed was the norm in the '70s. buy a blank one and send to a laser engraving company. a little white paint and done.

Just thought I'd share my shifters. Believe it or not same Jeep old picture, and rebuilt picture. The new shifter knob is a Jegs pistol grip shifter and is quite nice and comfortable, just a bit of a knuckle buster with a T-18 granny low gear! Im sure the old picture will get some laughs with the optional gas tank in the passenger seat!

After watching the shop guy at the tire shop throw my Jeep into gear and promptly backing up instead of heading into the bay, I've kind of thought of it as an anti theft device if it's not marked!

I too need a shift knob for my 74 cj5 renegade for both transfer case and transmission. Also what is the shift pattern on the transfer case? It feels like H up N in the middle and L down. This does not make since to me as I thought it had a 2H and a 4H. I have manual locking hubs and my grandfather (I got the Jeep from) says it is due to the manual hubs it only needs to settings. But this does not make since to me. Can some one fill me in? Did this year have only two settings which would be like an early AWD.

If you have access to a lathe you can do what I just did and that is I took three fairly large bolts cut the threaded section off the bolts drilled and tapped to fit then tapered the shank down to match the shifter shaft size then had parkerized a black but any type of plating or powder coating will work
